Interesting and Effective - Newport Beach, CA

Personal goals were to get rid of some of the spots and blotchy areas on my face. The procedure was fast and relatively painless. My skin felt very clean and alive afterward, and I believe it had a vibrant glow. I will definitely do the procedure again occasionally for skin health maintenance. I... READ MORE

3 Photo Facials Later and my Giant Sun Spot is Still There! - Overland Park, KS

Last year, I developed a penny sized sun spot on my cheek. Because I'm so pale, it stands out horribly.

1/3 Treatments - Chicago, IL

I just got back from my first of three treatments. I am of Chinese decent and initially the doctor said I wasn't a good candidate due to too much melanin (dark hair, dark eyes). But I went for a test spot anyway. Nothing adverse happened, so here I am now. I feel nothing out of the ordinary,... READ MORE

Not What I Expected - I purchased a package of photofacials and microderms - Virginia Beach, VA

I purchased a package of photofacials and microderms - 5 of each to alternate every two weeks. I didn't see any result from the laser. They aren't lying to you when they say it feels like a rubber band snapping on your skin. I did, however, enjoy the Microderm. My face always felt so nice after... READ MORE

3 IPL Photofacials - and Now I Look Sickly Pale!! - Capitola, CA

Initially I sought out IPL for stage 1 roscea on my nose/cheeks. I had a localized treatment in this area 10 years ago and it was very helpful. After some reserach, I decided to go for not only rosecea - but to target the hyperpigmentation on my chest, neck and face as well. In the initial... READ MORE
